Cub Scouts, parents and guest gathered Sunday, April 5th, at the old gym in Whitehall for the annual Pinewood Derby. Twenty scouts entered this year’s derby, and in the special open class eight entries were noted. Colt Petersen won the best paint job prize. David Quesnell was given a prize for the best design and James Lucas received a prize for the most unique vehicle. Adam Dillon was honored for having the fastest car, after racing Travis Henningsen in the final run of the day.
Whitehall students learned of biological weed control. “Our goal is to actually have some students that publish, find out something new, something that nobody else has found,” said Whitehall High science teacher Todd Breitenfeldt. “That’s what science is all about,” he added. In the end, the one hundred or so students at the lectures were invited to stay if they wanted to do research. Two dozen students stepped forward to take on the project which will require a great deal of work during the summer and in the evenings – all of it voluntary.
